2015-3-2  Cyanide with its competency to form a strong complex with gold, is the most preferable reagent for leaching of gold from ores. Cyanide leaching is not inherently a selective process since many other metals/minerals present in the ore are also readily soluble under cyanide leaching conditions. In this regard, most copper minerals are highly soluble in cyanide solutions (Table 1) although chalcopyrite and tetrahedrite are relatively stable. The presence of these soluble minerals may interfere with cyanide leaching and downstream processes for gold

What is Gold Cyanidation? (with picture) - InfoBloom

Gold cyanidation extracts gold from the ground. Gold cyanidation, also called cyanide leaching, is a process used to extract gold from raw ore taken from the ground. It uses cyanide to dissolve the gold within the rock, which, itself, is not soluble in cyanide. The gold is then drawn out in a liquid form that can be treated to remove the cyanide.
